Selfless Constitution

  • R 540.00

Do you possess ‘freedom’ — the will to do as you choose — as an individual, as a participant in social affairs or as a citizen in the political realm? Well, no. Not as most of us understand a term loaded down with metaphysical baggage. Don’t worry. You’ve got something better: a brain capable of carrying out the most complex analytical and computational tasks; involuntary membership in innumerable communities that provide you with huge stores of knowledge from which you can draw; and a politico-constitutional order that ought to provide the material goods and immaterial conditions that will enable you to pursue a life worth valuing. Drop the folk-psychology of freedom, and you might be inclined to adopt a set of social practices and political arrangements that enhance the chances that you and your compatriots will flourish.
